pain 6 months later from spinal tap

6 months ago [oct 30, 2008] i got a spinal tap [after the 3rd doctor he finally got the needle in]. i had the normal uncomfortable pain at first, then the pain went away for bout 2 weeks. after the 2 weeks i have had REALLLLLY bad lower back pain and my hips hurt. i can't lay down, sit up, stand, sit, rolling over in bed hurts, i walk like an old lady sometimes, i can't bend over to do anything. a friend said it could be a pinched nerve. i have not gone back to the doctors YET. any help?!?
